Sydney Dance Company's 2 ONE ANOTHER to Return to Her Majesty's Theatre in Adelaide, May 8-11
Internationally renowned Sydney Dance Company is set to return to Adelaide in May, presenting five performances of their critically acclaimed work, 2 One Another, at Her Majesty's Theatre, 8 - 11 May.
Sydney Dance Company last appeared in Adelaide in 2009 with a successful season of 360º, the work of newly appointed Artistic Director, Rafael Bonachela. Four years on, Bonachela is now recognised as a revolutionary force in Australian contemporary dance, currently combining his role at Sydney Dance Company and also as Sydney Opera House's Spring Dance Festival Curator.
The exciting new offering 2 One Another is an exultant and sensual study of human interaction and relationships, exploring the couple (2), the individual (One), and the group (Another).
Beautiful, dynamic and highly physical, 2 One Another is performed by 16 of the best contemporary dancers in Australia, including 2012 Helpmann Award winner, Charmene Yap, Best Female Dancer in a Dance/Theatre Production.
2 One Another is the result of an exciting collaboration between Sydney Dance Company Artistic Director and choreographer Rafael Bonachela, set and costume designer Tony Assness, lighting designer Benjamin Cisterne, and composer/music director Nick Wales, featuring poetry by Samuel Webster.
The performance is set against a stunning digital backdrop of motion design and animation, and features an exceptional soundtrack - seamlessly embracing Baroque to electronica - shot through with poetry fragments created and utilised during the development of the work.
2 One Another premiered in Sydney in March 2012 and toured to Melbourne in November. The show has just received four Green Room Award nominations.
In addition to the five public performances, Sydney Dance Company will also present a school matinee performance, and Adelaide Festival Centre's GreenRoom program for 16-30 year olds will present a Masterclass with Sydney Dance Company's Dance Director Amy Hollingsworth.
